During 40 years of operation, there is a lot of history behind our work. Let us take you back to the past and the journey of Student Association in Molde.

June 20, 1969

On 20 June 1969, the Storting decided that trial operations would be initiated with district colleges in Kristiansand, Stavanger and Molde, and in the autumn of 1969, 42 students would be admitted to the financial / administrative line at MRDH in Molde. A student association is established which gradually engages in canteen operations, book distribution and housing distribution, in addition to regular student association activities. Molde municipality is involved in building student housing and the first ones will be taken into use at the start of the autumn semester in 1970, ie the A and B blocks in Fabrikkvegen. In March 1970, the foundation Molde studentheim was established (city council decision 16 March 1970) and in 1974, the C block was built and taken into use. A collaboration was entered into with Norske Vandrerhjem and the student housing in Fabrikkvegen was marketed under the name RiMo Hostel Molde.

In September 1973, a committee was appointed to "study the various aspects of a possible formation of a student organization in Molde". The committee issued its recommendation in 1974. In 1975, the necessary decisions were made in student parliamentary bodies that a student organization should be established "to safeguard the students' economic and social interests in such a way that the study stay could provide the best possible benefit for the individual student".

In 1975, a decision was made in the student bodies that a student organization should be established with the usual objectives for such an organization, ie to safeguard the students' social and economic interests.
